Beginners Modern Calligraphy - Thursday 4th April 2024

Beginners Modern Calligraphy - Thursday 4th April 2024

Enjoy learning the art of beautiful, playful lettering with a dippy ink pot and old fashioned calligraphy nibs, in this Absolute Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop at Beetham Nurseries.

Included in the ticket price is a little gift boxed calligraphy kit for you to take home. You’ll get to keep your own pen and nib, ink and motivational quote to take home!

Our friendly and experienced modern calligraphy tutor Claire will introduce you to dip pens and nibs, showing you how to get the best out of your tools! You’ll begin by writing swoops and swirls and as you become comfortable with the calligraphy nib you’ll learn easy letters and playful techniques for beautiful lettering. Absolute beginners and those who’ve done a little calligraphy before are very, very welcome - and we’re sure you’ll enjoy learning the art of lettering!

If you have your own watercolours please bring them along so you can add a little colour to your creations! If you don’t have any, basic watercolour palettes will be provided on the day.

Please wear clothes suitable for crafting, as the black ink we use can stain clothes. Remember reading glasses if you need them!

The Details
